Louise Redknapp has announced that she is three months pregnant with her second child.

The former Eternal singer is due to have a November baby, who will be a sibling to three-year-old Charley.

And the wife of former footballer Jamie Redknapp is thrilled with the news, although surprised at how quickly she conceived, noting the couple tried for four years before she became pregnant with their first child.

She said: "When I did the pregnancy test, I nearly fell off the chair. My friend popped in and I dragged her upstairs and said, 'You've got to look at this. Am I reading it wrong?'" reports the Daily Mail.

Clothes Show presenter Louise also spoke of her husband's delight when he heard the good news.

The 33-year-old had to undergo two laser surgeries to correct a womb condition called endometriosis before she fell pregnant with her first baby, so she voiced her relief at the quick conception three weeks after the couple began trying.

"The doctors don't know why it has been so much easier this time - it's just the luck of the draw I guess," she said.

Jamie Redknapp, the son of Portsmouth manager Harry Redknapp, has played for Liverpool, Tottenham and Southampton.

He retired in 2005 due to injuries and is now a presenter on Sky Sports.
